Some of my CD's not working right so will have to do this as I get them working.

There is a Richard Coad TRENOUTH died Strathalbyn aged 71yo on 14 Dec 1901. (ages fit and only Richard I can see)

A Susan TRENOWTH (w) died Penwortham aged 75yo on 8 Nov 1867.

Will check my other CD for TRENOWTH and variants. I only checked it for TRENOUTH before..

Thankyou so very much to the both of you for this info.

I have been astounded by just how many of my Cornish ancestors left to make new lives abroad. must have been quite a brave decision to go into the unknown.

Hi Heather,

Thank you for your message!

The researcher of the family "Trenouth" is Sue Jenner.
I just tried to help to find the arrival in SA.

I am not related to this family.

Sue Jenner replied to my old message also saying "Thankyou" to you.

Thank you!
